Wow, they were "at the L.A. Music Awards!"
https://youtu.be/iamTrHbvcpw

L.A. Music Awards?! That sounds impressive!
I went to their website, and it costs .00 per submission + .00 for each additional submission, and "Even if you are not selected as a nominee, you will still have a tangible presence at our 2015 red carpet event." Yet they racked of SEVEN, that's right, SEVEN awards.
The LA Music Awards are literally run by a guy who calls himself the "Godfather of Rock and Roll" and dresses like the Do It! guy from the pizza commercials.

This is so sad.

Its a great way to get your kids ready for a life of exhaustion, cheap drugs and joyless sex with women paid to make you feel the illusion of love!

Mister Yuck
You didn't read close enough. They're run by the "Godson of Rock and Roll" who says he was handed the title by the Godfather the day before said sleazy nightclub owner died. Given the obvious integrity of everyone involved in this slightly pathetic origin story, I see absolutely no reason to doubt its authenticity.

"We also extend offers of participation in additional high profile press events for those who have the talent ***and resources*** to become celebrities in the fields of music, television and film."

Emphasis added. So, what, I take it this is kind of like that Hollywood Talent Manager scam Nick Bravo got himself involved in, only for wannabe musicians? Pay the LA Music Awards guys enough money, and they'll blow smoke up your ass?

Addendum:

When the Godfather was still alive, they had viable acts. They seemed to once be a place where people were saying either hello or goodbye to their careers, but that was decades ago. It looks like it's devolved into a place for rich Italians to execute their PR schemes.

That's some really good editing to make the crowd look a lot bigger than it is.

Not counting kids who play Rock Band, how many ten year old rock bands can there be? That's really not much of a qualifier.

0:55. Is that supposed to be a guitar solo, or is he tuning up?

The guitarist in the Frankenstein mask seems like a fun idea, though I suspect it's so that none of his musician friends will recognize him.

So many eleven-year-olds proclaiming this to be "the best concert I've ever seen." I assume they haven't been to, you know, concerts that weren't being held at a public library and/or featuring Dan Zanes?

I was down in Los Angeles a few summers ago doing this benefit show for School of Rock Afghanistan and the original School of Rock Los Angeles played, and then some other young (probably high schoolish) band, and then us, me being the youngest member (at 30) and some other "next big thing" like Regina Spector or something that never took off. Oh yeah, and a band that was flown in from Kabul who totally rocked. I mean, it was like Neutral Milk Hotel but in Farsi. I'd say that the SoR kids were definitely technically better than us adults, but it was all covers, like the parents just want to hear their kids play their favorites hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

I dunno, it's a great organization, but it's treated the same way as Youth Philharmonics across the world approach it. The difference is there aren't that many new symphonies coming out, so mom&dad getting to hear their son play Beethoven is pretty common, because, well, modern classical music sucks for the most part. If there's not more educational emphasis on writing your own songs for a generation where rock and roll still lives and re-creates itself yearly, some of the most talented musicians will be nothing more than the world's best AC/DC cover band in 30 years.
Mister Yuck
If they're kids though, developing the chops is probably the best thing they can do. How many people under 18 have anything original to say and share? At that age so much of the new, exciting things you're learning and feeling for the first time are so common to the human experience that their old cliches deeply explored by rock and roll that you can dozens of near perfect expressions of it. Once they begin to grow up and branch out and develop your identity, that's when you can begin to add to the great body of music out there, and those kids will be well served by the chops they've developed.

Of course, a lot of them will end up as AC/DC cover bands 'cause original stuff is really damn hard.

Mister Yuck
THEY'RE old cliches. Shit, why do I only proofread after I've hit post?

infinite zest
Shit I got red marker all on my monitor for nothing :)

(yeah poeTV could use an edit option)

you're right, and rock stars that actually DO have something interesting to contribute (Bright Eyes, Zola Jesus, Wavves, Red Kross etc.) are pretty few and far between. And for every one of those there's a 15 year-old like Bieber or Swift whose lyrics come out of a think tank. But maybe a think tank wouldn't be such a bad idea: some of my favorite songs when I'm 33 still pertain to how much of a loser/stoner I was in high school, like Archers of Loaf or Pavement, universal themes like that, so a little bit of lyric "coaching" and songwriting could mean that these lil' rockstars could get the Biebs treatment from a mentor who actually knows rock and roll, has a couple of ideas that they can pass along.

What's weird is right after I wrote that I was talking to this guy who's in a Turbonegro tribute band.. I was never super into Turbonegro but know enough about them that I can probably sing along.. anyway their shows regularly sell out, since Turbonegro never tours and I never got to see them with the original singer. He writes his own stuff too but those shows are a lot more lucrative and probably more fun.

At least they don't look ridiculous dressed up as a British schoolboy, unlike you-know-who.
